Atlus has sent word that digital pre-orders are now live for Persona 5. As a bonus, early digital buyers receive the dynamic Protagonist Special Theme & Avatar Set. Pre-orders also come with in-game DLC, the Izanagi & Izanagi Picaro Set Persona, who makes a return from Persona 4 in the flesh and as a themed dress for Picaro. To learn more about the Phantom Thieves, scroll down to check out the recently released story trailer. Details were also revealed about several Confidants, characters who form a bond with the party and will lend them a hand. Three of them are detailed below, and star in their own trailers.

Persona 5 is scheduled to launch on April 4 for PS3 and PS4.

Story Trailer:

Munehisa Iwai:

This frightening looking individual is the proprietor of Tokyo’s finest airsoft gun shop called Untouchable. Since the Phantom Thieves need to arm themselves against all types of enemies, you can see why keeping a man like Munehisa close is important. Helping him out will unlock a wider selection of wares, discounts, and even an option to customize certain airsoft guns! If you’re a gun nut, you definitely want to stay in this guy’s good graces.

Tae Takemi:

If you’re feeling under the weather, you may want to stop by Tae Takemi’s medical clinic. Even though it’s located in a shady alley, her clinic is THE place to treat any injuries sustained during Phantom Thieving. Helping Tae with her “experiments” unlocks stronger health potions and consumables that can help turn the tide during fights. Yes, she may have a dubious reputation, but who else are you going to rely on for medicinal needs?

Sojiro Sakura:

After the protagonist is given a second chance in Tokyo, he’s reluctantly taken in by Cafe Leblanc owner Sojiro Sakura and temporarily calls the attic of the café his home. If the protagonist chooses to help run the café throughout the game, Sojiro will teach him various coffee and curry recipes. How does that help the Phantom Thieves, you ask? Well, crafted coffee and curry can be consumed during dungeon crawls to restore SP. That’s pretty important, so be sure to stay on Sojiro’s sweet side in order to get those recipes!  Oh, and he’ll also drop some fun facts about coffee here and there if you’re into that sort of thing.
